Network Security

Understanding Network Security

 Here are the basics of your Network Security. We have tools to keep your business safe in face of these ever broadening threats. These tools may be purchased or we can offer them at very reasonable monthly rates.


  • Firewalls: Firewalls are your first lines of defense against outside threats. A firewall analyzes the traffic and data going to and from your network. Think of it like a virtual bouncer which keeps dangerous entities from entering your network.
  • Antivirus Software: If a virus or piece of malware does manage to get through your firewall, it can be neutralized with an enterprise-level antivirus software. An antivirus eliminates threats as quickly as possible while limiting damage done. Real-time, cloud-connected Anti-Virus is always being updated and provides the best chance of catching zero-day and zero hour threats.
  • Spam Blocking: Not only is spam annoying and useless, some phishing emails might slip through your defenses. Instead of going directly to your inbox where you might fall for their tricks, it goes to the spam folder, where it can be promptly ignored and deleted.
  • Content Filtering: Not all web content is safe for viewing, so it’s important that your team can tell the fake sites from the real ones. Content filtering allows you to block certain websites from access, so it’s also good for increasing productivity in the office by limiting employee access to time-wasting websites like Facebook, BuzzFeed, and others.
  • Encryption: In short, encrypt everything that makes sense to encrypt.
  • Network Monitoring: Someone must be resposible and accountabe for monitoring the network. We use Network Monitoring tools that alert us in the event of any security issue.
